CHORES & ERRANDS-a poem [Sat, 10-6-18]

Christ In Winter: Reflections on Faith & Life for the Years of Winter…

Chores and errands
These keep me sane

When winds are high
And the boat is swamped
I walk serenely into the gale
Holding firmly my mop and pail
As winds fly high
And waves meet sky
I swab the decks
Until they’re dry

When the night is dark
And the lamps gone out
And every good intent is dead
I go to the store to buy some bread
When the world’s deceit
Has gobbled the meat
I use my feet
So all can eat

Chores and errands…

John Robert McFarland
